The result meant Arsenal set up a Wembley showdown with Manchester City.

Nothing separated the sides after the semi-final’s first leg at Stamford Bridge ended goalless two weeks ago.

But the stalemate was swiftly broken as Chelsea took the lead through Eden Hazard after seven minutes at the Emirates Stadium.

Yet question marks about Arsenal’s steel in the face of adversity were swept away as they levelled five minutes later through a fortuitous Antonio Rudiger own goal.

They then turned the match on its head, with midfielder Xhaka turning predator 15 minutes after halftime to finish from close range.

Arsenal stayed rock-solid at the back for the rest of the game to set up an enticing final against Manchester City on Feb. 25.
